UMO+ Hot End Isolator Tube Stuck in PEEK

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was assembling my UMO+, and I realized that I had screwed the hot end isolator tube into the wrong side of the peek, and now I can't unscrew it (I tried wrenches, bare hands, gloves, tried until i got bloody fingers). Does anybody have any tips for this? It's kinda sad, cuz if I can't fix it, I'm kinda screwed (and my local reseller doesn't sell a UMO+ hotend pack).

Thanks in advance!

What I do to take it out its:

Assemble the nozzle while hot like if you where going to use it. Then unscrew the peek. It comes out very easy if the nozzle pressure it's 'on'. I broke 4 barrels or more before finding out :D

Upss I get it. You can't do that... Then do what gr5 says indeed.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
